SDC - Christmas in July

NEVER have I made a Christmas card so early in the year, lol.  However, the Stampotique challenge is just that - Christmas in July.  And as luck would have it, it's an "open stamp" challenge, as I don't have any Stampotique Christmas stamps.


I have used a piece of chip which I painted with lilac eco-green paint and the Paperartsy Christmas Fairy, to which I've just added some bling and some milled lavender distress stickes to her wings.  I found a stamp with little stars on it which I stamped in distress embossing ink and immediately added glitter to.

The background card is stamped in a purple versafine ink and is an Inkadinkado snowflakes set.



Now all I've got to do, is remember where I've put it, come December. Oh yes, and to order those gorgeous Stampotique snowmen so I have them in good time for my "real" Christmas card making!!

I need to remember to order my Christmas stamps too LOL. Can't believe we are doing Christmas in July but it will be here before we know it. That fairy is so sweet, not used a fairy for Christmas for ages. Lovely colour combination too. Tracy Evans x

I know you really like these stamps, and this is a lovely card! Well, if you won't be able to remember where you put it, then when you do find it, it will truly be like Christmas! hee hee
